Customer Reviews

Berlioz and Poulenc

Berlioz and Poulenc were decent French composers Mr. Boolez. And this is a very good album because Stephen Hough is a great pianist.

Delightful!

Mr. Hough provides sharp, crisp diction on a piano with crystalline clarity. The pieces by turns sparkle and shimmer. "Melancolie" sounds like a flowing river, while "Improvisation #8" seems to delightfully skip along. Track #14 features a rather ominous passage in the bass while the treble clef persists with optimistic lighter notes. Clair de Lune is played more tenderly and sincerely than I've heard in a long time. You get the idea - I'm buying this as a download. I believed myself to be somewhat well-versed in piano music, but several of these are new to me. Truly delightful.

Good playing

Even though it's mostly French music. Bach and Listz being the major excetions here. But really, can anyone name me a decent French composer? No wonder he had to harken back to bach and Listz to fill the album out. Silly little French composers.... -Bz
